One thing I really struggle with in my shopping break is feeling like I can still be on-trend without buying new stuff every season. Although the goal is obviously timeless and classic, I still crave current from time to time. I find myself working harder to stay tuned in to the things that are having a “moment” that are also things I already have–like blazers, kitten heels, and combat boots, and then using those things as the basis of my inspiration for this capsule. I have a solid foundation of neutral pieces that I’m hoping will mix and match well with my riskier items and lead to a sartorially satisfying season.
I surprised myself by gravitating toward amethyst, but I think I just really fell in love with this Toulouse-Lautrec piece we saw in Paris and I’ve been noticing it everywhere since. I love how the mauve/purple tone pairs with warm neutrals like camel and rust, and it also looks great with navy, which I knew I wanted to bring back into my capsule this season.
I’ll be sharing my full Winter Capsule Wardrobe on Wednesday, so stay tuned.
